A palpable mass: A painless mass that you can feel is the usual symptom of cancer. Not all breast masses are cancers, of course, but if you have one that persists, you need to see a doctor. Conversely, some breast cancers can't be felt, they can only be seen with an imaging study, such as a mammogram, ultrasound or MRI.
